Despite selling millions of albums and concert tickets, Nickelback has long held the title of ‘most hated rock band’. However, it sounds like they might have some new competition.
Corey Taylor, frontman for Slipknot and Stone Sour, said in a recent interview that people are ‘slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback’ and that they were ‘passing the baton to Imagine Dragons’.
Taylor feels a local connection to the new ‘scapegot of rock and roll’, since Imagine Dragons hail from Las Vegas, where Taylor has lived for the last nine years.
Who do you think is the most hated rock band in the world? Has Imagine Dragons taken the title from Nickelback? Does either band deserve to be hated?
